Posted:Went to this meet at the community centre tonight . . . NIce to meet you NOn, good to put a face to the posts . . .

The evening was a bit odd to start with but got going ok. though didn't know really what to expect

a few (5) spinners there, quite a few jugglers and a few playing with staff . . though the unicycle hockey was very amusing . . .
Managed to shake some of the rust off so won't make such a fool of myself at the Falmouth get together . . . but will keep practising . . .I will get the btb weave . . .

Posted:Pleasure to meet you too Matt! yeah, it was tres groovy... am absolutely shattered this morning though! 2 hours seems a long time for me to be continuously poi-ing.... Next week i might bring my staff and knock out a few people... (oh... it's dangerous!)

I also a strange nagging feeling that i've met Beth someplace else... in fact, there was quite a few familiar looking faces, and yet i knew absolutely no-one..... umm

Posted:Yeah it was cool. . .i agree I reckon need to play with a few differnet things . . . I have been looking for a suitable stick today but to no avail . . would like to have a go at staff. . . I have had a little go in the past but never done too much ..

Oh well next week you will know some people, including me . . apparantly they sometimes go for a drink after in the TUt'n'shive which doesn't sound like such a stupid idea . . .

Posted:oooh, no.. not stupid a stupid idea at all... beerchug ubblol

and it is true, i wil know some people next time, but then that's slightly annoying when you have that nagging feeling because you never know if it's nagging feeling that you have because you obviously did meet them before...? i'm not sure if that makes any sense... i should probably just shut up now. biggrin
